Special Courses for Foreign Students in Japanese Private Universities

Special Courses for Foreign Students (SCFS) are formal university courses as defined by the School Education Law. SCFS in private universities and junior colleges offer preparatory education to students who plan to enroll in junior colleges, universities, or graduate schools in Japan as degree candidates, research students, and researchers. Japanese Language, Japanese Studies and other subjects as necessary are offered in the SCFS
Most SCFS have courses in Japanese Language and Japanese Studies taught in Japanese. There are also some that offer courses taught in English.
Compared to other Japanese language teaching institutions, the greatest advantage of studying in an SCFS is its academic environment. Students can study Japanese in rich curriculum which includes Japanese Studies and Culture courses, and take advantage of other university facilities.
